In SteamWorld Heist you command a steam-driven pirate crew in a series of epic tactical shootouts. It's turn-based strategy with an action twist: You manually aim the guns of your robots, allowing for insane skill shots and bullet-bouncing action!

As the captain you will board, loot and shoot your way through enemy spaceships. Overcome the challenges of the vast frontier by upgrading your recruits with unique abilities, weapons - and even stylish hats!

Available languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Russian.

Key features:

- Strategy focused on skill rather than chance
- Procedurally generated levels
- 15-20 hours of playtime, followed by New Game+
- Kind to newcomers, deep and challenging for veterans
- Soundtrack by Steam Powered Giraffe

Recommended devices: iPhone 5, iPad 2 or any newer iPhone or iPad with iOS 8 or higher.

Stunning stunning stunning game - has kept me busy many a late night while the child and wife are sleeping.

Not sure how it translates to the touch screen, but on Steam it's rated very highly.

Oh man, I love it how all these steam/PC games are making the jump across to iOS. This looks fantastic.

I contribute a bit to the beta so I wholeheartly recommend this!

Need to check but I think it should have supported MFi-controller.

This is a nice surprise, I already have it on 3DS but I'll probably buy it again to support this dev and so we hopefully get SteamWorld Dig on iOS.

I've been waiting to get it on the 3ds but the $6.99 iOS price tag makes me think I'll get it for my iPhone 7 or iPad.

Wow. Turning out to be a motherlode week. My wallet is aching...

By the way, let's try to stay on-topic and talk about the game in this thread. I'd hate for discussions here to spin way off-topic given that we have other places on this forum to express politics, religion, etc.

Thanks all!
